Johnny Rebs’ True South Long Beach
Johnny Reb’s is one of those restaurants you never forget – a true southern cuisine experience on the California coast. It’s the creation of Cheryl and Larry Cotter who met in California and wanted to put down roots in the state, but dearly missed the South. They missed the barbecue, the desserts, and most of all – the hospitality of southern residents.
After much deliberation, they made plans to open their own Southern barbecue restaurant in California. To prepare, Cheryl went back to the South, starting in North Carolina, and spent a year getting into every restaurant she could. She learned the ins and outs of restaurants, smoked meat, and baked up to 1500 biscuits a day to perfect her recipes.
Southern comfort cuisine, including BBQ meats, biscuits & fried chicken, in a rustic atmosphere.
